Considered a classic, houndstooth print has stood the test of time and is always revived in a more modernized take for fall and winter seasons. This year, we once again saw the comeback of houndstooth trend from coats and dresses to accessories and shoes. This trend was notably popularized in the 1990´s when high end designers such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Emporio Armani, and Moschino adapted the houndstooth pattern to their collections. To date, houndstooth is a well-embraced trend in Hollywood and among the high-fashion socialites.
Houndstooth Shift Dress with Classic Coat
There are many ways to wear this trend and one of them is by subtly injecting the houndstooth pattern under your coat. This version of little black shift dress with houndstooth print on the front will look striking once teamed with a classic black coat. Alternatively, if you can find the perfect plaid top coat to wear over your dress, the better. Keep things elegant, add a glam black pump and a complementary, stunning clutch.
Houndstooth Pea Coat with Leather Leggings
Houndstooth is common in tweed and wool fabrics which explains the wide variations of houndstooth coats and jackets in the market. To wear this trend in winter, choose a houndstooth coat in style that you love and wear it with black skinny jeans or leather leggings. Keep the look edgy, add a pair of black leather ankle boots and a great bag.
Matching Houndstooth Jacket and Pencil Skirt
If you look at how houndstooth pattern is worn in the runway, it´s usually worn with another houndstooth piece. Although it can be a little nerve-wracking to wear matching bold print, you can actually try it. Start with a professional look, a black/white houndstooth jacket teamed with a matching black/white houndstooth pencil skirt for work, or if it´s kind of too much, consider wearing the jacket with a black dogtooth panel illusion skirt instead. Always finish off with black shoes (like pumps) to maintain elegance.

For a more casual and playful look, take a little black skater dress and accessorize it with houndstooth print ankle boots and a houndstooth bag. If the weather is cold, throw over a black leather jacket or a cropped, fitted parka coat and a knitted beret.
